Miniature Printing Presses by Letterproeftuin

Need to print a card or illustration on the fly? Forget those high-end laser printers for a while and look for the smallest printing company instead!

In today’s high-tech and fast-paced world, it’s understandable how most of us go for the quickest, most convenient, and most fool-proof options. But, creative minds never seem to run out of ideas for making things in the simplest way, with results that are never short of awesome.

Take, for example, the neat idea of Letterproeftuin, a traveling open source design studio from the Netherlands. For this year’s International Poster and Graphic Design Festival, they made some miniature screen and letter printing presses for printing small, posters, and books prints while on location. Take a look at some photos of the mini printing presses in and out of action below:

While Letterproeftuin most likely won’t be making these mobile printing presses for sale, it would be awesome to have one for making postcards, contact cards, and maybe even booklets! A clever and creative idea, don’t you think?
